Weaving class at Sarakraf

A great way to enhance your stay in the city of Kuching, Sarawak is to take a cooking, crafts, painting, or traditional dancing class. 

These are affordable and taught by affable experts who speak English, and Melton Kais’ painting classes can even include a home stay on premises if you wish.

Sarakraf is one of the great experiences in Kuching.  Crafts classes are offered during the week, and dance classes on weekends.  Courses include ceramics, batik, bead work, and bamboo weaving.  Cooking classes are available upon request.  You may also buy crafts there as well. 

Painting and Drawing Classes

Melton Kais is a fine local painter and professor of art who provides painting classes twice a week.  He can also craft a curriculum for you for more intensive work, and you can even stay at the nicely-appointed Wesberly House above his gallery and studio.  This is a great way to “get away” in Kuching, and have a wonderful art experience as well.

    Hi. I’m Aisha. I’m a form five student. Well, I’m currently studying at SMK Batu Lintang, Kuching. I’m in the pure science class and I don’t have Art classes as the teachers at my school won’t take me as a student as I’m the only one from the pure science student that’s taking art as an extra subject. It’s very hard finding art classes outside of school as I’m not that familiar about it. I’m quite good in Art but I need to polish my skills as I have my SPM this year. I hope you can take me as your student.Thank You.
